Returned Peace Corps Volunteers Welcome at AUNE
Alicia Barrera, program specialist in the Peace Corps’ Office of University and Domestic Partnerships, met recently with several AUNE students who had served in the Peace Corps.
Kirsty Yetter, Dance/Movement Therapy student; Michael Nork and Victoria Gasidlo, Environmental Studies/Sustainable Development and Climate Change students; and Christa Cozzolino, Elementary, Early Childhood, and Holistic Special Education student, talked with Barrera about their Peace Corps experiences.
Ten AUNE students this year are Peace Corps/Paul D. Coverdell Fellows. AUNE has been a member of the Coverdell Program, which provides scholarships to returning Peace Corps volunteers, since 2011.
